Taxonomic Breakdown...[edit]

Should we go straight to family level taxa after suborder (Mesothelae, Mygalomorphae, Araneomorphae) or go to infraorder or superfamily first? -Totipotent 05:16, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

If there is an infraorder or superfamily level, by all means!! Use every valid taxa that are available. Lycaon 06:02, 25 April 2006 (UTC)
